Another week has passed in Year 3 and we are now only 4 weeks away from the end of this term. Time really has flown and with these darker nights now upon us it will be Christmas before we know it!
In Maths this week we have continued our number line work with a focus on placing three digit numbers on to a number line. The children have worked super hard on this and we are going to start thinking about rounding numbers next week. Can I please ask that all children are practicing their times tables throughout the week, using the grid that was sent home at the start of the year. Even if it is 5 minutes a day it will make a huge difference!
In English we have started a new topic on information texts. The children are going to be writing an a-z holiday guide in the coming weeks and I would be grateful if the children could bring in any holiday brochures they may have at home or leaflets regarding days out etc.
In Science we have started to look at soil permeability whilst also making sure that our compost bins are working and the worms are doing their job!
In R.E this week we went over to Church where Father Jim performed a Baptism for us so that the children could see what happens during this sacrament, as well as giving them a chance to see the signs and symbols of Baptism in use.
We were extremely lucky on Wednesday morning to be able to take part in a live broadcast of Romeo & Juliet performed by the RSC. We then came back to class and did a story circle of the play which helped the children to understand what they had seen.
Our award winners this week are:
Maths: Lennon. Lennon is a great mathematician and I am so impressed with the work he is producing during our Maths lessons.
Golden: Jack. Jack has had a fabulous week and has worked so hard to make the right choices. Well done!
Writing: Georgina. Georgina has made great progress in her writing this week and wrote a wonderful descriptive piece on the port of Ephesus from A Comedy of Errors.
Please see the homework section of our page for this weeks tasks.
Have a lovely weekend.
